    When holding my iPad Air every know and then I here and feel this almost click from the centre of the device, maybe to the right a bit.

    I not holding it tight or anything and haven't dropped it. It's been like this since day one and it's kinda worrying me!

    Anyone else having the problem?

    Sorry if this has already been mentioned but I couldn't find any other thread about this.

    I had this with my first mini, it turned out to be a slight dent in the bevelled edge (against the glass). This caused a distinctive click when holding it on the one side. I took it back to Apple to exchange, which they did.

    I have not and I haven't even heard of such an issue before. Sounds like it's worthy of an exchange to me.

    I went in today. There was no Genius Bar appointments but was still within my 14 day return window, so just got them to swap it out. New one restored from backup without too many hiccups, so happy about that!

    Thanks for your help! :)
